Re: Tent set up WIND

I used metal plates over the top of that flat bit on the bottom of the leg, then parked my car on top of it like you have. Only did a tent for a few weeks and found it very time consuming, fleets and dealers are a far better and reliable income 12 months of the year in my humble.

Re: Any suggestions- Drill?

Same as Brent here in that I can only see the small photo, but something does look odd about it, maybe partially filled before. I would certainly not be drilling that type of repair as drilling down into the cone would not get you anywhere. Flexing and making sure I used a UV shield would be of utmo...

Re: Rotary tool too big

The new Delta drill is brilliant, so nice to hold and use, plenty of power and long lasting charge, once again Delta have come up with the goods.

Re: Star leg not filled

That needed flexing from outside, not inside, heat is an enemy as it causes the glass to expand making to leg close up and not allowing resin to flow. Did you polish until the polish had dried as this is when the shine appears.

Never cure until the repair is full is something I teach over here.

Re: ONE YEAR

I found adding long crack was counter productive, all it did was tell people not to bother having a small chip repaired until it became longer. I am very capable of doing long cracks and have taught many people over the years how to do them. Increasing sales in my humble is about getting away from a...

Re: Curing under pressure

Glass Patch that is odd, I have never manged to get enough UV through the windshield even to set pit fill resin, reason being there is a built it uv inhibitor. Novus used to teach curing under pressure by resting the light on top of the injector at an angle, or at least they did when they trained me...

Re: Windshield Repair Practice

Can I also add, when practicing it is a good idea make the damage wet before starting the process and also to do a good few outside. The wet gets you used to drying out and the outside gets you used to the idea of direct and indirect uv. Making sure you master these things will make the quality of y...

Re: Besides dealerships, what other places make good fleet accounts?

Stand on the end of your road for an hour writing down the names on the side of trucks, there is a start. Find a local mobile tool sales guy, as they are magic at finding fleets. Local public services, school buses the list is endless. I drove past a sewage works for 18 years before finding out they...
